Storyline

A newlywed man who has just completed his national service, Alekos Stathakis, is trying to get over his class' misery, but doesn't have the necessary "equipment". He conceives an ambitious plan and submits it to a great concrete factory. He seems to believe that success is just around the corner and shares his illusion with his wife and his father. When his plan is rejected by the company, he keeps it to himself, making things even worse. Written by Greek Film Archive

What happened at the seventh day of creation?
20 April 2010 | by ananias73See all my reviews

A excellent portrait from Vasilis Georgiadis (who directed "Ta kokkina fanaria" and "To homa vaftike kokkino - Blood on the Land- both academy awards nominations for Best Foreign Language Film)of a very ambitious young man (Alekos) who tries to leave behind his poor life's misery and escape from his sad reality through illusions and lies. Also a memorable portrait of a city (Athens) back in the decade of 50's, neighborhoods with a court, character type neighbors (like the local lawyer here) willing to help everyone to meet his below average ambitions and needs. This movie is also an authentic Greek tragedy towards the end, what ever happened at the seventh day of creation? When God stopped creating, sit back and relax, to see his creations collapsed down. Very good performances from Fotiou & Tzortis, an excellent one from Starenios, an actor with a film career full of mean and evil roles of a traitor, killer etc. , here as the beloved father of Alekos, a performance near to perfection
